Night Out with My Loves :)

This is really an outdated post. Should’ve posted this last March but due to my busy schedule (I was a graduating student), I wasn’t able to. Sorry guys.

Last March 20, 2013, I spent the whole night with my friends and my baby. March was really a busy month for me. So many requirements and deadlines and so many things to finish for me to be able to graduate in time. Good thing I was able to squeeze this into my busy schedule.

Mary Rose Grand Carnival was our first stop. Carnivals often pop up in Naga City whenever there are special occassions, like the Peñafrancia Fiesta.

They also have an admission ticket. Cute! Looks like a movie pass you see in old movies.

While waiting for my baby. Candid!

We took a quick pic before we entered the carnival. I really love this pic. We are all smiles. :)

Here are some pics of the rides available.

My baby looks like an action star here!

I convinced my baby to ride the roller coaster with me. I’m really proud of him. His face was pale and his hands were really cold after the ride. I was really worried. Good thing, he conquered his fear.

Picture with the gang!

Uh oh! There are no tricycles nor padyaks in the area. -__- Planning to hitch a ride on this truck! Hahaha

There are no people around so we took the opportunity to take some pictures.

EPIC FAIL jump shot! Hahaha! It was fun, though.

Next stop, M.Bargo Grill!

Inuman na! :)

With the girls. :)

With my baby. :) Sorry if the pic is blurry. Maybe Kim was tipsy while taking the shot. Hahaha.

Credits to my friend,  Antonette for the pictures!

Okay guys! I’ll end my post here. Thanks for reading my post even though it was outdated. Hahaha. Till next time! xoxo, Jill

Instagram Photo Dump (June 2013)

I know it’s a bit too late to upload these photos here. I just wanted to show you guys the things I’ve been doing last June.

I officially became employed when I started working for Salazar Surveying Office last June. After graduating last March 23, 2013, I lazed around the past two months and enjoyed my status of being unemployed. Yep! You read it right, unemployed. Thanks to my uncle, I finally went out of my summer routine of sleeping, eating, surfing the web, watching TV, eating and of course sleeping again. (Notice that I repeated eating and sleeping. That’s because it occupies a lot of my time.) But of course, my summer was not that super boring because I went out with my family, friends and of course my baby. I’ll create a separate post for this. But for now, I’ll show you the pictures that I’ve been uploading on my IG account.

So many receipts to record. -__-

Throwback Thursdays. Ah.. nostalgia. :)

Selfie Overload. Hahaha! :D

An unexpected text message from my baby. This made me sooo kilig! :”>

Miami Vs. San Antonio (Finals) Yep! I get to post this on my IG too. Well, I’m not really a big fan of basketball but it was really fun watching the playoffs.

Oh no! My post is getting longer and longer and longer. I opted not to post the other photos coz I know you are all already bored of my throwbacks and selfies. LOL. :)


Its been months since I’ve last posted here, and now I’m back guys! *insert smiley face here* There’s soooooo many things that happened these past few months and I hope I can share them all with you. The problem is, I don’t have time to create new posts. *insert sad face here* But anyway, This is just a quickie post.

I missed blogging. I focused too much on photo blogs and photo sharing sites such as Instagram. But hey! Don’t fret. I’m back! I’m cooking something up right now. Well, not literally. Hahaha! You’ll just know about it in my upcoming posts. Till next time! XOXO, Jill

Beware of Unknown Numbers

Hey guys! It’s been light years since I last posted here. Oh my! Time flies by too quickly. I noticed that my not that recent posts are all about relationships. Hmm… I think that I should write about another topic but, what? I think I’ll let you in something I’ve been pissed off about during the last week.

Recently, an unknown number has been texting me. He knows my name and my location. He scared the hell out of me. How did I know that he’s a he? Well, I called the number using another number and the rest is history.

I didn’t really intend on replying but I’m really curious of the person behind the number. I thought the one texting me was just another friend of mine playing a prank on me. I asked him where he got my number and he said that he got it from a local newspaper. He said I was looking for a textmate. Excuse me??? I’m a very private person. I’m not the kind of person to post my private number in a newspaper and to look for a textmate at that. I don’t even give out my number to people who ask for my number when I just talked to them once or they were just introduced by my friends and especially to strangers.

He sent me gross messages. Shit! I was really annoyed by this and I stopped replying to his text messages. I think that you guys should be really careful with whoever you are talking to especially if you don’t know them personally. People who send gross messages really get on my nerves.

If you’re the kind of person who talks about sex on text, please stop! You’re annoying, disrespectful and last but not the least a big douche bag. I don’t want to sound mean but this is what I really feel towards people who do this kind of thing. I hope you will get clear thoughts so that you will know that you’re wasting the time of other people. Send a text message to yourself instead. It’s possible and it prevents you from pissing off other people. If it’s a form of satisfaction for your part, think again! The other party is not satisfied at all unless he/she wants to receive those kinds of messages.

If you’re a victim of this, just ignore. Don’t reply anymore. Block the incoming messages or calls from the number or better yet, replace your number. Trust me! When you don’t block the number, they will still send you text messages. I know it’s not good to receive this kind of messages. It’s not funny and not amusing at all.

Everyone, beware of unknown numbers who text you out of the blue. It’s a good thing if they are the people whom you’ve lost contact with over the years but if they are strangers, think again. You don’t want to let people into your lives that easily. You don’t know the harm that they may bring to you, your friends and your family. Don’t say I didn’t warn you. Have a nice day guys! Keep safe! =)

My Kind of Boy :)

1. Do you need him/her to be good looking?
Not really. As long as he’s okay-looking, that’s fine with me. :)

2. Smart?

Yes, but I’m not talking about the nerdy dude. He would have to be smart in a manner that he doesn’t lack common sense and he knows how to keep a conversation going. :D

Nineteen. Ito na siguro ang pinakahuling numero na matatawag mong teen ang isang teenager. Kapag teenager ka, inaasahan ng lahat na nagkaroon ka na ng kahit isang relasyon sa iyong opposite sex. Ngunit sa sitwasyon ko, hindi ko masasabi na nagkaroon na ako ng isang seryosong relasyon sa isang lalaki. Kaibigan, oo. Boyfriend, hindi. Maaring isa nga akong NBSB (No Boyfriend Since Birth) pero dito lang ba nasusukat ang pagka-teen ng isang tao?


Siguro, isa na sa mga dahilan kung bakit hindi pa ako nagkaka-boyfriend ay dahil strikto ang mga magulang ko. Overprotective sila lalo na ang papa ko. Siguro ay takot lang ako na suwayin ang mga kagustuhan nila kaya ganito ako ngayon. Ngunit sa tingin ko ay hindi lang naman ito ang dahilan. Hindi kasi ako masyadong nakikihalubilo sa ibang tao kaya siguro pwede kong sabihin na socially awkward ako. Hindi naman ako tulad ng mga loner sa tabi-tabi. Hindi naman forever alone ang peg ko. Sa tuwing may jamming ang barkada, kadalasan ay hindi ako sumasama. Ako kasi ang tipo ng tao na mas pipiliin pa ang magbasa ng libro kaysa sa sumama sa mga kaibigan at magsaya. Ayoko ng madaming tao. Minsan naman ay tila may sarili akong mundo at ayaw kong papasukin ang ibang tao dito. Ngunit tama na sa salitang siguro. Ang masasabi ko na lang ay, ito rin naman ay kagustuhan ko.


Masasabi ko na masaya ako kahit wala akong boyfriend pero minsan ay malungkot din. Kapag nakikita ko ang mga barkada ko kasama ang mga boyfriend or girlfriend nila hindi ko maiiwasan na mainggit. Hindi naman ako manhid para hindi man lang makaramdam ng kahit ano. Nabanggit ko ang salitang manhid. Siguro ay manhid ako. Low gets pa kung idadagdag mo. Pero hindi ko naman maitatanggi ito dahil sa tuwing may mga lalaking sweet sakin, ang iniisip ko ay super friendly lang sila at wala silang gusto sa akin. Hindi kasi ako marunong magbasa kung ang isang lalaki ay may gusto sa akin o wala. Hirap ako pagdating sa mga sitwasyon na ganito. Mas gugustuhin ko pa kasi ang straightforward kaysa paligoy-ligoy. Sabi nga ng iba ay torpe magnet daw ako. Naranasan ko na din noon ang tanungin ng mga lalaki kung pwede daw manligaw sa akin. Pero tinatawanan ko lang sila dahil hindi ko alam kung ito ay totoo. Mahirap kasing sabihin kung nagbibiro ang isang tao o totoo na pala ang mga sinasabi nila. Kung minsan ay naiisip ko din magkaroon ng lihim na relasyon pero napag isip-isip ko na wala akong mapapala kung gagawin ko ito. Kung magkakaroon man ako ng relasyon ayaw ko ng patago. Mas gusto ko ang alam ng lahat para walang problema.


Tulad ng iba, meron din akong dream guy. Pero alam kong wala naman talagang kwenta ang isang listahan ng mga gusto ko sa isang lalaki dahil hindi ko alam kung sino talaga ang nakalaan para sa akin. Yuck! Nagiging cheesy ako. Ngunit isa sa pinakagusto kong gawin para sa akin ng isang lalaki ay umawit siya sa harap ng madaming tao at ialay ang kantang aawitin niya para sa akin. Gusto ko din namang magkaroon ng soulmate. Pero hindi nga lang siguro ngayon kaya kailangan ko pang maghintay at sana it’ll be worth the wait.


Ika nga sa Dear No One na inawit ni Tori Kelly:


“So if you’re out there, I’ll swear to be good to you. But I’m done looking for my future someone. Cos’ when the time is right you’ll be here but for now, Dear no one, this is your love song.”


Pero hindi ito isang love song. Hahaha. Peace! :)
